Hello Staale,

Now that is a fellow a bit different from the guys around my place!
However the relation is well visible and the eating behaviour is all the same...
Good details in the fur coat, a well balanced composition!

Hi Staale.
What a wonderful in all respects picture. Pose of the squirrel, surroundings, low POV and framing of the scene are superb. I also am impressed with brilliant details and sharpness of the animal, sand around it and nearest stones as well as amazing lights and lovely natural colours. Bravo. Perfect picture.
